Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The judges were impressed by the twenty years of painstaking effort needed to find a solution to the endless painting of the bridge. Pell Frischmann carried out condition surveys, and analysed the extent and rates of corrosion. They researched paint systems and checked the additional weight on the bridge from the weatherproof enclosures needed to apply them. The bridge now has a coating that should last for at least 25 years. More than just a paint job!
